New Automatic prism and polygon checker launched at Photonics West
The Taylor Hobson automated prism/polygon measurement system offers high stability angle measurement and testing of optical prisms, polygons, wedges and angle gauges from as little as 2mm² in size. A combination of high precision hardware and dedicated software ensure polygon measurement to better than 1 second.
The prism checker uses the Taylor Hobson two axis digital Ultra Autocollimator, respected throughout industry for its high accuracy and stability over a wide measurement range (1800 seconds). This is combined with a highly stable rotary stage which gives precision positioning and movement to less than 1 second.
Dedicated software allows programmes to be written, saved and recalled using a simple step-by-step process and the results produced in a detailed report format.
The prism checker will be on the Ametek Booth 1321 in South Hall at SPIE Photonics West (30 January to 1 February 2018). Our technical applications engineer will be on hand at the show to demonstrate the accuracy of versatility of this new system.
